Anyone Can Draw: Basic Drawing with COMPAS Teaching Artist Andrew Young

October 9 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Garden Mausoleum Reception Area
$10 in advance / $15 at the door
Purchase Tickets

Spend the afternoon with Lakewood in this fun and creative drawing class for all levels. This workshop will teach participants the basics of drawing, exploring different ways of mark-making, various tools (pencil, pen, ink, marker), and some light art history showing different styles. The basics of shading, perspective, proportion, and edges will be covered, as well as different types of drawing subjects such as landscape, still-life, and figure, as well as drawing from the imagination.

All materials will be provided, but please bring a photo or object of significance to you or someone you’ve lost. If you choose a photograph, it does not have to be of a person: it can be a place, object, or something else. But if you prefer a photo of a person that is okay as well!

No experience necessary.

About your instructor

Andrew Young (he/they) is a Taiwanese-Indonesian-American puppeteer, artist, and educator based in Minneapolis. They received their puppeteer training through Monkeybear’s Harmolodic workshop, and has since worked for Mayday and Barebones as a staff artist/performer, as well as continued to create their own work. Andrew believes that art can be incredibly healing. It can help us understand ourselves better, it connects us to others, and can be a powerful tool for seeing the world differently.
